  2. As a child, I was also like many other children in terms of communicating:shy, fearful and lack confidence to speak in front of a large gathering. I was too shy to express myself even though I had a very strong point of view to share and express. As a child of 10 years, I didn't have had the courage to go forward and share my thoughts infront of 50 to 100 students in our School,  it was because of my shyness. I got a chance to speak but my shyness always stopped me and pulled me back to go ahead and express my self till I finished my fourth standard. I used to participate and practice a lot in the cultural programmes with in the small team, but when the moment comes to perform on the stage, I was nervous, shivering and with profuse sweating all over, and used to suffer with fever.
    One of the School Radio workshops held in ZPHS, Chinadoddigallu, Visakhapatnam
    I lost many of my opportunities and chances. My father choose to serve under privileged and hence he choose to serve as a medical officer at Srisailam Project, Srisailam, then we moved from Hyderabad city to Tribal area Srisailam. I was joined in a government primary school in fifth standard. In the middle of the session, I was I was made my class leader by our teacher because of my communication skills, leadership qualities and discipline and my learning. But, shyness still remained till I passed my seventh standard. No one encouraged me beyond some point. Slowly, I made up my mind to speak up when I was invited or picked up by a teacher or Head Master in front of the assembly: to read news, to lead school prayers, or pledge. I was quite active in sports and games and gather friends and motivate them to play. I was a champion in Ring Tennis but, that shyness to speak infornt of large gathering never vanished.  Once I decided to over come that phase, I determined myself to perform my best 'come what may'! Then, I over come that fear of public speaking, fear of communicating, sharing and learning.  I got courage, confidence and shed my fear. After that,  nothing stopped my curiosity and learning. That element and experience always remained in me in as a backlog. Then on wards, I was the first in my class to speak, sing and participate in debates, discussions and essay writing competitions and that streak continued in me and leading me till today to listen, to speak, to learn, and to share. Till intermediate, my shivering continued even though I was confident. After that, I never bothered about my shivering and just went ahead upto the dais and speak and performed on stage. Even though, we were working with children and youth for the past two decades, only in 2015, we have developed our idea into a venture and initiated School Radio in the year 2015 on 13 February-World Radio Day. We believe that, each and every child is unique. At School Radio, we give opportunity to each child to explore, know their  potential, understand their interests, shed fear, and build their confidence. Once they shed fear, they definitely excel in their chosen field, studies and co-curricular activities. Whatever children and youth learn on School Radio we make them to apply the knowledge in their life. Application of knowledge makes children creative, leaders, decision makers and responsible citizen. Believe in your child. They become successful in their life. If you believe us and your child's capacities-  encourage them to participate in School Radio workshops. Currently, we announced Earth Day Workshop on 14 April, 2021.

We, at School Radio believe that each child is unique and they are great creators. IF you believe too, join us in promoting awareness around Earth Day-2021 and part of the change you want to see.

  5. Writing an essay is like searching your soul and helps you express your thoughts in a structured manner. It involves critical thinking; a purposeful and reflective analysis used to reach conclusions. Critical thinking challenges students to scrutinize arguments and positions they may have taken for granted, getting them to develop their points more thoroughly. Also, essay writers are often required to reference various texts; by engaging
    with a variety of literature and information, students gain a diversity of perspectives and points of view. Using this analogy to elucidate possible solutions from the young citizens for environmental issues that plague every nation today has been the objective of SPHEEHA - an India based NGO with members across the globe focusing on issues related to environment, ecology and heritage. As a part of its outreach objectives SPHEEHA organized its 15th Global Essay Writing Competition for children on 27th December 2020 with a focus on environmental issues. The competition was held for three categories divided as per age viz. junior, senior and super senior with the broad topics being ‘Water – The Life Sustainer’, ‘Pollution and Environment’ AND ‘Climate Change & Economic Solutions’ for the respective categories. Nearly 3000 children from 210 cities across 4 continents took part in this competition. The kids had a choice to write in either English or Hindi. 

    In an age where technology is having an impact on children’s handwriting ability; SPHEEHA has encouraged the kids to write by hand for this competition. The rationale being based on research that students who write by hand retain more conceptual knowledge by way of kinesthetic memory than those using digital devices.  Speaking on this occasion, Dr. I. Rajesh Venkat  – Member & Coordinator of  SPHEEHA , Visakhapatnam, said, “After the phenomenal response to the recently concluded International Drawing & Painting Competition conducted by SPHEEHA, it is truly remarkable to see such high level of participation from children despite the pandemic. We hope the kids enjoy these competitions and bring the best creative ideas to pen and paper”. A certificate of participation will be given to all participants and 108 prizes across categories are up for grabs. SPHEEHA along with a leading publisher will also be bringing out a compendium of the winning essays in the form of a book which will be available on various platforms.

  7. Trees are the Earth’s endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.”

    -Rabindranath Tagore


    “Planting a tree is the easiest way to align yourself with the cosmic rhythms”

    Trees give us hope and insight, teach us to stay rooted while soaring the great heights and courage to persevere – even in the harshest conditions. Many living organisms depend on trees for their shelter and food.  Every year due to increase in pollution levels and human acts we are deteriorating this balance. So, it is our utmost duty to help the nature recover itself by planting more and more trees.

    Continuing this motto, Dayalbagh, Agra in collaboration with SPHEEHA – Society for preservation of Healthy Environment and Ecology and Heritage, a registered NGO, active since its inception in 2006, came together and celebrated the International tree plantation day on Aug  1st 2020. The program started with a prayer at 5.30am, followed by planting of a teak sapling by Prof. Prem Saran Satsangi Sahab, Chairman Emeritus of the Advisory Committee of Education, DEI University, Agra. The members then planted at their respective locations.  This is one of the biggest tree plantation events organized by SPEEHA till date.

    Over 1000 volunteers and like-minded people from across the globe planted more than 3000 trees of approximately 60 varieties, primarily comprising of teak, avenue, fruit, vegetable and medicinal plants, bamboo, spices and herbs etc at 136 hub locations. The total number of participants who connected through two-way transmission were 2,662.  Through Audio-mode, 7,978 participated and another 3,940 witnessed the proceedings on YouTube. In all 14,580 were connected in one form or the other. Karolbagh, Delhi was also a part of this grand celebration – with 22 volunteers maintaining the social distancing norms of the govt. during this Covid’19 pandemic. 

    The program concluded with the signing of an MoU between SPHEEHA and DEI University, Agra for cooperation and sharing of resources towards creating an environment-friendly world. All participants across globe participated with Zeal and enthusiasm in making the International Tree Plantation Drive a grand success, by following all rules, regulations and safety of the participants despite the COVID 19 pandemic.To know more about SPHEEHA's work, visit https://spheeha.org
